Oh, the shame!

Take a look at these photos…

The first one is the one I’m so ashamed of. It was taken on my Wedding Day and I look fat and ugly. My face is enormous! The following Summer at a friends wedding, I look awful and I felt awful. During the wedding I spoke to a friend who had lost quite a bit of weight on WW and thats what inspired me to sign up. The Summer after that, 2009, was my graduation from University (for my postgrad) and the only thing I like is my hair and that’s covered up! Summer 2010 was one that was quite relaxed, no uni no worries no limits and the weight crept back on. But one thing I am quite pleased with is that over these 4 years following the timeline of photos I’ve actually lost over 4 and a half stone. That’s quite an achievement!

But you know what, I prefer the last photo taken of me last month and I’m not ashamed of it, I actually really like it. That is definitely motivation to keep on track and get my ass moving. That weight is never ever coming back to haunt me! {sig}
